    I have recently tried following on my N96 Nokia cell phone.

    - Bolt
    - SkyFire
    - Builtin browser from Nokia
    - Opera Mini 5 beta

    I am really impressed by Opera 5. Very nice little browser. It was a pleasant surprise for me. :thumb: Only problem flash is not there. :mad:
    Some screenshots from google.

    I agree with you. With server compression, Mini is fast:thumb: Would like to try out the pay version "Opera Mobile"

    I have a blackberry phone so AFAIK I have the options of the bb browser (slow as hell on at&t) or Opera. Opera seems a lot better, just wish there was some way to make it my default browser on my bb.

    On my Nokia 5800 music express, Opera mini 5 beta :thumb:
    I have tried Opera mobile specifically for my mobile, but at the moment Opera mini beats it for speed and stability.

    I like many thing in Opera mini.

    - multiple tabs
    - speed dials( as bookmarks)
    - elegent GUI
    - web sites font is so nice
    - most imp I can disable images that decreases data download greatly, decreasing my bill :thumb:

    Only problem that predictive text/ dictionary is not there. So typing is not easy. I don,t know why they removed it? May be due to beta.

    +1! Opera Mini B2 is working wonderfully on my BB Storm. So well, in fact, that I was able to dump a few dedicated apps in favor of just using bookmarks (primarily speed dial), in OM. It's almost as fast as using specific apps and doesn't eat up app memory on the device.

    My favorite thing about OM, though, is *Opera Link*. I grabbed the USB version of Opera - http://www.opera-usb.com/ , set up and synchronized speed dial and bookmarks via Opera Link with my BB. Absolutely great!
